Well, its Halloween tomorrow and I wonder if any of you will come trick or treating outside my sett? I’m afraid that I’ve only got a few slightly chewed hazelnuts and a squashed blackberry to give away though. I don’t think you’ll find them very tasty, but the squirrels might like them.

Puddles and mud are great!! I’ve been splashing about all week, getting thoroughly wet and leaving trails of paw prints in the mud wherever I go, they make a great pattern! I tried to hop to see what sort of pattern that would make but I don’t think badgers are very good at hopping. Instead of hopping, I sort of flew and landed head first in the mud. Splat! Ouch! I’m sticking to walking on all four legs from now on.

I’ve just been having a go at this month’s Wildlife Watch competition to name the butterfly. I like to spot butterflies when I’m out and about, then I look up what species they are in my butterfly id book.

I think I know the answer to this one, but I can’t tell you what it is......!

This week I’ve been spider watching. I’ve seen hundreds of them! Yesterday I saw a garden spider eating a fly and the day before that I saw a daddy long legs stuck in a web. It wriggled and wriggled but it couldn’t get out. It is amazing how spiders can spin such beautiful webs. I wonder what it would be like to be a spider and live in a web. I think I might like it.

I’ve been out along the hedgerow picking blackberries today, I ate lots and lots. Most of them tasted sweet and juicy but a few were really sour! I’ve got purple juice all over my white stripes now though so I suppose I’d better go and clean myself up. Have you picked any yet?

    We have lots of cats near our house and they come into my garden but we have a light in the garden and it lights up when something or someone comes nar it.The cats go under it and I think it scares my mum!

    I saw a few scrapes and some torn out fur on the grass in a local park yesterday, obviously rabbits fighting. What would they be fighting about, though, at this time of year? My teacher said he's known them to have kittens as late as December in a wool bale, how territorial are the bucks though? (We human does are generally more civilised, but I don't have any rabbit friends)
